Survivor Panama final four cliffhanger concludes Sunday during the season finale

Survivor Panama teased us last night, making us wait, for the first time ever, to see who will be voted off. As the words “to be continued” appeared on the screen, Cirie and Danielle were facing off in a Tribal Council tiebreaker challenge.

The challenge–and the season–conclude on Sunday starting at 8 p.m. ET. And as usual, the two-hour finale will be followed by a one-hour reunion, where we will be reintroduced to all the people we forgot about.

Interestingly, the final four each represented one of the original four tribes, which were divided by age and sex. Also of note is the fact that the season’s other twist, the hidden immunity idol, was never used the entire season. It’s now useless. Terry might have needed it last night, but Aras and Cirie voted for Danielle instead of him, so arguably it served its purpose, protecting Terry–and generating buzz about the show.
